Our church family is in the midst of taking time over a period of 40 days to fast and pray for the Kingdom to be advanced. Many of our family of faith have fasted a meal a day, a full day of meals per week, or some other item to remind themselves to pray and seek God’s face during this time. I believe that God is pleased when His people are faithful and fervent in their prayers. I also believe that God renews us as we seek to glorify Him.
As a result of this time of spiritual renewal, I am excited about this Easter as well as some wonderful plans for this summer and beyond! This Easter weekend will have three straight nights of our Passion Play. We have a Saturday Community Easter Egg Hunt. We are actively seeking both a part time pastor of youth and a pastor of children. We are beginning a summer feeding program for all children under age 18 to provide free food and fun filled and Christ centered activities. We are planning seven small scale neighborhood block parties to plant gospel seeds each Sunday night this summer. There is a youth camp, a mission trip, and a back to school celebration in the works. This is not all that we have planned, but as you can see, we have many great things happening to advance the gospel and help people to Come, Grow, Serve, and Share!
I invite you to join us. Be in prayer for the Kingdom work. Be in prayer that we all stay encouraged in Christ as we get physically tired from the many hours of planning and serving. May we all seek to serve Christ and His Kingdom!
